Italy votes to cut number of MPs and senators
"Cara the initiative. First of all to reduce the number of MP's this was a big headline initiative of the five Star Movement. Why was that? Did they have a sincere belief in reducing the the role of government in Italian life or did they just think that you never lose votes by leading up on politicians? Well, the movement five stars as people who do follow Italian politics will know was born essentially as an anti elitist movement from the very onset in fact, it was never. Going to be a party, I told at the very beginnings it's very point was to remove the privilege of the ruling elite and the the the reduce reducing the number of of MP's was seen as part of that historically There is a consideration, the one of the main considerations from the point of view of the movie stars and other parties that have. Box. This referendum is to save on the cost of politics whether the cost is actually relevant enough. The savings are relevant enough to actually make significant difference is to be determined but it's difficult to oppose such measures from the point of view of symbolism writes in the. PD. So the center left Party, the Democrat, party has had to back this referendum eventually partly because we are they are now in a ruling coalition. With the move and five stars and they don't want to be seen at odds with one another because that could put the government risk. But also because nobody wants to be perceived as the party who's protecting the elites ultimately because the cost thing is nonsense isn't it's one billion euros over ten years which in the context of the national budget of a country, the size of Italy is beans it is and that's been remarked a number of times As I said, it's more about the symbolic gesture than anything else in front. One of the a practical consequences that this reduction will have is that a will significantly decrease the amount of representation. So that right now, there is one MP in the Chamber of Deputies. Every. Ninety six, thousand, Italians dutton number will now go up to one each one, hundred, fifty, one, thousand Italians, and think the will be particularly seved at the level of the Senate because the Senate is elected kind of via regional route so that there is different electoral colleges, etc, and set in regions will see the number of their elected representatives go down by or more than half, and that's significant from the point of view of how much. Swayed will have in the chamber. Extremely significant and does appear to be the obvious drawback of this game. Nevertheless, it was very popular among your fellow. Italians with seventy percent voting for why is that? Do you think? Do you think that's an if you think about Europe as a whole? Is that an unusually high number more than usually sick of the people who are running the country? I think one of the reasons why the result was so high as because it was ultimately backed by lot of parties so that the party division line was less dark than it would've been now the situations in which these referendums have been politicized the moving five stars of course voted yes it's electorate voted compactly. Yes. Like almost ninety six percent or something this deal moving five-star electorate voted. For, yes. But the PD also officially backed it and the vast majority of the electorate of the Lega and all the rest of the center right also did. So when you sum up all these different parties that there's less of a political kind of undercurrent to it, other than a win for the moon five stars and a not rocking of the current political establishment because ultimately PD also bacteria. That's the political meaning that you're going to be gleaning out of it. So on the subject of gleaning political meaning from things, these regional elections were held at the same time. What did they tell us? It's very interesting because a lot of people over the last few years have wondered whether Salvini could get back on on his horse. Matteo Salvini. Yeah, no indeed and these regional elections where a very important appointment because it's the first time that Italians do vote after covid right? And there were a number of regions that historically have been left wing regions that were thought. They could go to the center right and that hasn't largely happened the centre-left has held in many of the places where it wanted to hold a apart from a mark wearing fact, the candidate that's now become the governor doesn't come from Salvini Spotty, but from Italy Italia, which is the other far right party but less of a kind of northern secessionist heritage more of the Roman heritage right. What we're seeing across the bode board in these results is that Salvini is losing grip on many things, other challenges from within the center right IRA merging not least Georgia Maloney the leader of Fratelli d'italia. So this other far right party not least. Competition within his own party Ziad. The governor of Benetton very popular in his region because of his management of Cavite has skyrocketed to six to seventy six percent. Results in in the region and so I think we're what we're seeing is that the left wing is holding where it probably didn't even think it would hold this much and that context government despite content not being an elected official of the centre-left has actually given a lot more credibility to the current coalition that I think anybody would have expected doesn't strike you though that this is a a left versus right question on more of a professionals versus populists question because a like a pandemic is about a stern test that any government can face and obviously Italy was one of the first places in Europe to face it on a very large scale. Is it possible that something of this sort has reminded Italian voters that maybe there is something to be said for voting for blandly competent and relatively calm people who are actually capable of doing stuff i. think that's exactly the point partly because the populist narrative, very much centers around narratives around you know migration and other issues that don't really relate necessarily to what many Italians rating about right now, which is administration economic recovery, which is returning to schools on you know relatively less appealing because they are much more ordinary budget still, very, very important concerns and interestingly you mentioned you know that the rise of the. Leader? Many, of the regional leaders. The. Regional governors are now coming onto the national stage and where in the past I think we used to see a lot more mess come into national politics right now we're seeing a lot more of these figures that used to be very much in the background because not many people focused on regional governors. Suddenly they were putting a spotlight because of covid this new whole generation of politicians coming to the full, and we will have to see in the next few years. How many of them will make the jump to national politics?

The Pandemic Has Researchers Worried About Teen Suicide
"The leading cause of death among our youth age 10 to 14 is suicide. And I think this is an absolute tragedy. In addition to what's going on in our veteran community and our are under served communities And this is where I think he's right. But the aggressive approach the aggressive steps we took to save lives, and now the expressive steps that we need to take to save livelihood. We understand what isolation does to people. We understand what happens to people adults as well. Within that leads to this depression. That leads to a lot of these things. What are we going to do about it other than say, when its sacred, the governor said opening schools can help, But the phrase here when it's safe is what was a little bit frustrating. We do believe inside the school environment when it's safe. The teacher The counselor. The parents, the piers can all be helpful in identifying someone who is suffering from depression or a mental health breakdown. In addition to the counselors and the therapist on that our young people can then access Those services. So when you say when it's safe, we met the bench marks. This is the part of this that is so frustrating. For the students that fit into the categories that were given here. And you're going to hear some statistics in a moment from Dr Cara Crist. And you can hear the emotion in her voice reading these If you've got a child that fits into these categories. In the classroom is the place that can fix it. And the numbers are where they are all of them in the place that they said they needed to be for schools to open. Why are we not doing it? This? Listen to what what Dr Chris has to say. And the emotion in her voice in 20 19/40 percent of Arizona students. Reported feeling sad or hopeless for almost every day. For two or more. This is higher than the national Estimate of 36.7%.

Why There's No Shame In Feeling Your Best!
"All righty. All righty we are here once again, thank you for joining me my friend. My name is Cara. Bradley bringing to you these early morning messages. These little pokes these prods these. Words of empowerment of inspiration anything that's streaming through me I want to share with you. Because that is how I am wired. I'm just wired to want everyone to feel their best. That's what I want to talk to you quickly about this morning. Feeling our best I think it's it's what's driven me in everything that I've done in my career for my whole life. How do we feel are best because when we do feel are best mentally. And physically. We do everything. Better. Everything clicks into place. There's alignment there's flow, there's ease their creativity there is service, right so we can't give what we don't have. So when we focus on what we have in what we don't have in a good way, I'm talking about a positive way not like I don't have the Porsche right but we can get there. But but when we can focus on truly as I was talking about yesterday, getting down to the studs and really focusing on. What we need to do to feel our best. And we start to take consistent daily action they are. Then everything's going to start to change everything everything. Now, most of us don't take care of ourselves the way we should I am at the top of that list. I've told you I, have dealt with high stress chronic stress adrenal fatigue. It was like a it is like an invisible gas in my life. Until I started taking care of other areas specifically my gut. Health. which led me to then see the stress that I was carrying. So. As we do one thing, we do all things as we fix one area of our lives we become more aware of other things. So for today, I just want to drop this into your consciousness. Where can you feel better? Right. Let's just get down to the nitty gritty here. And List. Not, in a way to make feel bad not to call us any shame but to really take an unemotional and I, think that especially as women we need to get down to that unemotional reality. Where we can just deal with it deal with it in in plain sight. So the common sense pillars of wellness that I talk about I talk about this in our new facebook group called your high definition life. I'd love for you to be a part of it. I'm just curious eating it. This is a work in progress, but the three. Weeks of living in high definition is number one to feel your best. Number to walk your talk. And when that happens, then you can impact the world in the way that you feel call to your unique expression. So today is just feeling your best and I talked about at the last two days starting with the gut. So the common sense pillars of wellness are one. Stress Reduction too. Good Quality Nutrition. Three Exercise Four Quality Sleep five being in nature and addressing your gut health. So I'm going to say those one more time, write them down if you can. And just start to look at each one of these areas of your life and I'm GonNa talk about them more in the coming weeks going to intertwine them throughout these messages. But what I what I encourage you to do is to really really look at. These areas of your wellness and like I said without the shame. But with an intelligent curiosity, how can I do better? What do I? Where do I need more information? Where do I need support? And then go do that because your health. Is the most important thing. For everything in your life for living that high-definition life.

MORNING MESSAGE | Its a Privilege
"What an extraordinary privilege it has to be alive in this moment. It is almost overwhelming. How carefully we have been chosen. To be awake and alive right now. I sit with you today my friend in Valley Forge Park where I am most mornings for a walk. Where I find so much inspiration from the natural world. The Woods in the grass and the birds. And it just struck me today. and. It has in the past but I don't think I've been able to verbalize it what a privilege. It is to be experiencing this massive massive change. In Our world. And the amazing thing is it's not just one of us. It is all of us. All of us are being stirred awake. All of us are being disrupted. Every single one of us. Has Been inconvenienced in. Some way. Of course, more some more than others. But in some way, inconvenienced world's changed routines completely thrown out. Own My. Gosh. And so I as I sit with this almost too big. Too Big a statement to really. Hold in my little being. As I, sit with this, I just. I. Just. I'm compelled. To. Commit myself. To not wasting time looking backward. To not wasting my time trying to make things the way they were. But to allow myself. To step forward. Step by step. On new ground. In. New Territory. In uncomfortable and unfamiliar. Realms of being. How you. Now, this may be like Cara. You're just a little too out there. And I know that sometimes I go. And I mean not make sense. But I, I have a feeling. That, if it's my soul speaking to me. I'm able to speak it then perhaps it will speak to your soul. Beneath Your Thinking right now. So, there it is. May We not look backwards? May We recognize the privilege of being alive right now. Maybe, we just hold that. For, whatever it means in this moment, put it in your pocket. and carry it with you into your day. And perhaps it'll. Whisper to you and your ear and make sense to you at some point today tomorrow next week next year. It's a privilege for to be experiencing the massive disruption of our collective consciousness if we hold on too tight to the way things were. We may miss the opportunity to express ourselves in our own unique way. Right now. And that expression comes through in an infinite number of ways. I can't tell you what your expression is. It could be just the way you drive your car and I seriously mean. To teach others how to be more mindful. It could be in the way that you that you. Run a meeting, it could be in the way that you care for your child. We each of us have a unique. Divine expression. A creative intelligence. That is just Poking at the. Door. and. So in this time at this time in this moment. Can you just sit with that and trust? Your expression is ready. It's ready to come out and if you been doing it, it's ready to come out even more even more boldly uniquely. Even more spontaneously as I spoke of yesterday. So recognized the privilege. The profound -ness of what we are living through. Check it out if you continue to turn backward. And try to put things in order the way they used to be there's no order. Allow yourself the freedom. And step into your courage. To Walk. Into the unknown uncertain unfamiliar. Territory.
Britney Spears' Ex-Husband Wants Her Back
"Events daily pop. Hey remember when Britney Spears married Jason Alexander for just fifty five hours. Well, he wants her back now. Yes. They're right. Jason was spotted at a free privy protests at the courthouse yesterday he told us weekly. He still has love for Britney and he'd quote definitely the open rekindling their romance quote if they would give us an honest chance. Is he serious right now old what is furious? Is this heat in? Los. Angeles put that photo backup with the orange shirts. I can see that under boop sweat real quick. You know how hot it is in this Place look at. That alone. Look better though. Her he looks good. But I just like what is this guy I mean he clearly has nothing going on like the fact that he's GonNa show up even just give us weekly any sort of exclusively come on. This was how many years ago twelve thirty claims that two thousand four was when this fifty five, our wedding are. happened. They were childhood friends they got married very briefly. Now they've been I think in touch a little bit throughout the years I doubt recently my goodness. So the things he had to say about Sam you guys San has to be so livid right now. Right. So he said I got to see this code and he said I don't know him. He looks like he's in good shape but I'm in good shape. So Bravo to him she's got some type of feelings for him I. Guess I'm like Oh, my Gosh San if he ever sees you, he's going to punch you in the face. He's never gonNA. See Him this guy ever not a factor in her life, and this is the problem. What happens is even though he went there with good intentions quote unquote this just makes everything that Brittany's fighting for a spectacle and it makes it joke and if he really loved her and really wanted to be a part of her life and really wanted to help her, he would have stayed away from that camera and not became this headline. One hundred percent, and also for him to be like if they gave us an honest chance, she doesn't want you like I. Don't know who they. Does not she has no interest in rekindling your relationship I. Promise you that I don't know where he gets off thinking. Oh, if they just would just believe in our love like she's not petitioning for you bro at all, she's not looking for you in any day. Ever Gosh tell it like it is mortgage. Ed I love the. If a man sit outside like that for me I would feel some type of way about it in the. Sweat It's always flattering, right? It's always flattering to see. Talk about how he wants you back I. Mean it's Nice to hear whether you care or not of. The protest was held at the courthouse because there was a hearing about getting Brittany's data removed as conservative as we told, you yesterday according to court documents I'm really wants her care manager Jody Montgomery to step in permanently. So Jason has thoughts on that to telling US weekly Britney doesn't want to be under the conservative ship and he wants her to get what she rightly deserves. So how does he? Oh, how does he know he has not been in contact with her is will be. Governed from ghost talking to this man talent him where Britney saying he has no idea and Britney has said exactly what she wants and this for him. This was kind of a bold move because this hearing wasn't about changing anything this hearing was about let's check in. Let's see what's happening. The real hearing will come once they file papers and once she puts in court writings that she wants this change. This guy's making it worse for her get off her bag they offer not it's just. Weird. Do you think the intention because he wants Brittany back or he wants his own fame or he just was truly going there out of love for Brittany, and truly feels that she feels trapped and was trying to be a voice for her? What do you think I can't believe this I can't believe this is our Abe. Block. Are you kidding he therapy for fifteen minutes and it's going to be four because this is the last time we're talking about this. This is insane person. We have not heard one word about this person in sixteen years six I'm too hot over this. Crazy. You'll get the fifty. He'll get the fifty because what will happen is Cara Delevingne will see him on the news noticing that he's getting airtime. So then she'll date him to make Ashley Benson Jealous, and then he'll get twenty minutes. Oh my God. We're bringing car delving into this way. Okay. Well, let's move onto a couple that we've also talked about a couple of times before. New Year. So Tomorrow Laurie Lachlan and her husband Massimo are scheduled to be sitting for their roles in the college admissions gets scandal at the same time. The government's recently filed sentencing memo raises questions about what their daughter Olivia Jade may have known. So here's the new stuff. You guys. So Libya is never mentioned by name in the document, but they're quote. Younger. Daughter is referred to specifically prosecutors say in one incident Laurie Mossy Ma and they're quote younger daughter discussed how to avoid the possibility that a high school counselor would disrupt their scheme. So the family has not spoken out, but a source close to the family says their daughters had nothing to do with this. So if what the prosecutors are saying is true. That Olivia Jay did know about this do you feel she should be punished as well as her parents? Here She did no I just hello even if she knew or did not know she is a child and was a minor at this point in her life. That age you do as your parents tell you to do you follow suit you. You'd even realize the difference between right and wrong I could barely drive through MC. At that point by myself, give me a break. There's no reason that this young girl should be punished for anything like I understand her parents made a mistake we've been talking about it when I was reading the research is warning I was like for over a year literally been talking about this now for over a year and it's dwindled down to two or three months and five months number one. The she was seventeen. Leave her out of it. It's not relevant for her to be involved with the fact that their names are mentioned I get it. They need to be to kind of paint a full picture you do what your parents, how you to do. This is how we're getting into college. Sweetie you go. Okay. Mom just let me know where I need to be et Cetera not true Morgan you do what your parents tell you to do but let's say let's say you've got some awful parents right? Like I'm not saying these people are saying you got some awful parents and they say honey were broke I want you to go steal some milk and some candy bars and some cereal, and you know what? Go ahead and grab that xbox to they won't even suspect you. You're a teenager just go do it. Okay. If they get caught that could go to Juvie or get some sort of legal. Question. So Matt Your question. Your mother. Makes you sign your name on legal documents that puts you as a as the lender on alone and your mother then defaults on it ten years later should be. Held Liable Harris of thousand dollar loan that your mother made you sign for when you're seventeen or would you fight it? Well that's different because you would never have hypothetical situation that happened in. Dollar Loan. Drill, trust. It happens on sweet bitter. I just saw show where it happened. So where do you bring up that example? I agree with Morgan when you're seventeen years old if my mother would have told me sign the papers for this D to my kidney I wouldn't have asked two questions about it because my mother told me. But my problem is. This is the problem my judicial system we're sitting here worried about what a seventeen year old may or may not have known meanwhile Brianna Taylor's killers walking around free and the people who accosted Eliza McLean have not been nothing has been done to them. We know exactly what happened. We've seen the camera footage we've gone through everything. Why are we focusing on this and not focusing on what we do know?

"It. Could warning from my? Hike. On Valley, Forge Mountain actually mount misery I am on Mount Misery in Valley Forge Park. I've been wanting to do this just to grab my voice recorder and come and do something spontaneous with you for a while. So thank you for joining in with these morning messages. They are have been for me just an UN leaching of creativity spontaneity Tearing US I said yesterday and a lot of God a lot of like, ouch. Do I really want to put that out there who listen? Maybe you can hear the water as a Britt. Creek here. So what came to me today was to chat with you a little bit about aliveness. And about glimpsing aliveness. All of the things that I talk about a really coming at awakening. Awaking- awakening out of your busy thinking mind so that you can directly experience the brilliance of your life. And we take different turns. We look at this this gem from different angles, and so that's why why it may seem sometimes like I am jumping around. But really what we're doing is we're just changing perspective because there's no one path. There are infinite number of paths to waking up out of the the dream state of your mind. So. Being in nature for me. Is One of those paths that I take daily that I have to take daily because it it plugs me into. My sense of aliveness like nothing else I mean there's other things. But A, but nature's just so predictable. So glimpsing aliveness is simply. Allowing yourself to be with what is. To be with the gravel beneath your feet in the green around you in the sunlight peeking through the forest and the smell of summer the sounds of birds without having to. Label anything without having to. Analyze anything but you just start to melt or Mesh with the moment as it's unfolding. This is the process of awakening. And we've all had these moments. Every, single one of us if you've never sat down to meditate, it doesn't matter. You've had this experience. And I just want to encourage you to develop this capacity. To glimpse your own aliveness. To pause moment to moment so that you can. Hang out in the experience as it arises as it emerges. and. So it may be through music cooking may be through yoga. May Be on your run Maybe be in your car by yourself who knows. It can happen an infinite number of ways. When we start to pay attention to the glimpses of aliveness I talk about this I write about this a lot my book, and it's really informed my life just just recognizing glimpses. Moment to moment sometimes, we get caught in the thick of our mind. oftentimes we caught. In the thick of our mind to the news feed and what the world is kind of. Barrage us with. But then there are those cracks in the wall right Leonard Cohen says, that's where the light shines through there are those moments between moments. There are those precious. the the smell of coffee, the the site of Sun hitting the top of the trees you know the catching of somebody's is holding it there. The these are glimpses beyond the veil. Beyond. The veil of the thinking busy judging doubting fearing mind. And so I offer you a piece of my walk here as I. Look around. Bucks playing around. I hear the birds water and. You know it's just to be with that's it. Nothing. Special nothing profound. This is our birthright. It's our birthright. To recognize our own aliveness in the life force that moves through us. So. How do you glimpse aliveness? and. Once you start noticing you're gonNA start noticing more. And once you start noticing it more. then. The these moments. Start to if you're lucky start to lengthen. And the duration of these glimpses. Start. To. Become longer. And it's then in these glimpses in in a longer glimpse that you start to really hear. Your Voice. Your source, your source intelligence come through.

Saykara in the Office with Dr. Gabe Charbonneau
"So before jumping into say care I'll just. Just tell you what my my workspace looked like before So I, I considered myself to be quite optimized and I was actually skeptical that this was going to make me faster for example, because I thought. Okay. I'm pretty quick at dragon. I have. My note templates optimized. I've got all these macro tools that I use. So I actually thought to myself is sort of this like person that was gonna Shepherd in something to try for some of my peers that might benefit from it more because maybe there was more more room to go and so So that's that was my background going into it when we started the pilot. So the I'll I'll just walk through like what a what a typical encounters with chairs like and then sort of some of the observations I had so So it's a mobile APP on your phone. It's an APP and it has your patient lists for the day on there, and basically before I go into the room I, select the patient I'm GonNa go see in I, walk in and I make sure it's okay with them that I use this a assistant because it's going to record the whole conversation. and. No one has objected to that. Yet. I mean they. They know that it's secure and compliant and all that kind of stuff. and. Then you turn it into listening mode which basically activates that it's okay for it to listen to the conversation and that's that's basically then I sat down. And from there So there's two things that are happening. One is that it's capturing all the audio from our from our conversation At this stage, I'm on version of the product that requires a little bit more queuing. It's a little bit like Alexa, where you you say, Hey, Cara, which is activation word right at or okay Keira in that gets into ready to accept the command. So it sort of mix little beep in the screen changes color and it's like ready to go and then things that you can do at that point are. You could say some speech that's like a recap of your narrative So so I've taken a history with the patient. And I. Say now I want to now, I want to get that into the note for today, I'm going to repeat back what I, what I heard. You say and I I also say if if I made any mistakes or left anything out when I'm please let me six, can I So from the beginning when you're taking the history before you get to that sort of that summary. Is. It still listening. Is it recorded at that point? Yes. It's listening so part. So I was going to circle back to that so far. So the technology's evolving like the dream is a fully autonomous sort of completely only tech solution where you know just like it listens to the whole conversation is sort of accurately catching the speech and then parsing that both for intention and. Direct. Transcription and lick capturing structured data and so forth, and like there's no need for any human kind of editing, and that is the model that's being built in as people who know about Ai and deep learning. It requires huge volumes of data, right? So this transcript, this conversation is we are building that. So okay, we're in the process of using. It s if it were like an Alexa in your exam room, you talked with voice commands, you don't have to speak any punctuation. Is Very natural, intuitive, but But what I'm actually most excited about this is like you're geek doctor is that we're actually building the model of the future So so that's where like I don't think that's the typical users not gonNA come at it being excited about like I'm helping build the future. They just want right like to ease my burden, but that's that's part of what excites me see. Okay. Yeah. So so anyway, so I. So then I will, but then I'll just speak naturally. Naturally. So you know the patient came in for whatever, and these are the things and and then you can voice command. Say thanks care when you're done and and then You know if there any changes, you just naturally say you know actually high blood pressure has been going on for two years versus whatever, and they'll. They'll change that and fix it. So you don't have to like drag and you have to find exactly how it came out highlighted. Say it again sort of supervise. So. This is another key observation that happened to me is that I didn't realize how much sort of mental effort it was taking for me to to proofread. Sl went with Dragon Like you say it in under sort of watching it, go on the screen and and that those are mental gymnastics really and so Cara secure has. Editing done in the background and quality control with people. Make sure that whatever whatever you said comes outright, and it's definitely better than I was reading my own notes dragging because I would think I said something, and then that would think i. saw myself saying that thing on the screen in that wasn't the case. So I'll get weird stuff sometimes in my notes. Yeah.

There's a connection between the the youth vote and these people who ran progressive contests and ran and won regardless of their their just regardless of their religion, regardless of their gender, regardless of their sexual preference. Again, they they won. So there there's a different the cannons. And is a different kind of voter. That's that's that's that's coming.

They rather believe and some of I call it the Jason wedlock disease. Now this guy who's the ESPN personality kind of believe politics, don't matter. But God and just me taking care of my family does. Okay. But you have a lot of these men that that'd be right? Well, they'd be right with the whole range if they weren't if they weren't racist.

To a certain degree language creates barriers because people don't understand what you're saying. Right. It can. So that's what happens a lot with independent films are independent filmmakers don't have the resources to dub their film. Okay. And every language where you can show your film. So Regina, what what what is the common thread in your project speech to human existence? Well, I mean, I think he, you know, when you have everybody wants to belong I think that's the common thread, and when you have people who don't feel like they belong. They don't have a country. They don't have a race. They don't have parents and that need to belong, and I think that that's sort of. That's universal need and desire. What are they go back to Ryan for second? And I know Regina dresses earlier. But I was wondering about an I think he alluded to it when he was talking about the fan festival. The challenges of getting your film distributed. If you would address that. So. The challenge is getting my distributed clan. Honestly after my first time, I didn't have any challenges with it. Wow. After that. Real sounds arrogant. But I'm just saying I need to. But after the first film blood of a champion. I haven't had any problems on getting my film distributed part of the review of I learned I run. So you don't need any more money this. Well, no always need money for production. Right. So distribution of production are different. So always need financing for projects. Right. But distribution of never had a issue with that. Because. One is that was good relationships with distributors. Right. And the other is I found out what they like and how they sell their moving, right? So the light bulb went off on the went off in my head. When they when I was selling blood of the champion. So I'm like, you know, we sat beside this film. Besides the project on buddy, five millimeter, everything looks great the colors, the colors that and they Zeca tive at coal black entertainment said, listen. Nobody cares. How good your film? Look. Because when WalMart target that's by blockbuster buys these movies. They don't watch. So the focus on who's in your backyard, who's going to sell your movie what the your fans wanna see when they walked down the aisle that'll make them pick it up. We're in was that the same way case with your documentaries. With my back. You memory eilly enough. Just so what's the the BMX documentary? Okay. So what might be left documentary? I promised myself.

But for it's a great way for somebody like, myself and other filmmakers to get get this theaters, you know, in screens to people who wanna see it. And the fact is if there's not enough interest. It won't happen. If there is interest it will happen. So I mean, I do think you know, it's you vote by buying ticket. And it's not like, oh, you have to you know, Batman is coming to, you know, everything in the country. It's like, okay. Yeah. I'd like to see this film. Can you can you bring it to this theater? It's almost it's like net net flix, but, you know, having a theater as opposed to in your, you know, your living room. Wow. Ryan, do you think thank you very response? But why do you think if some type of change or some type of response to the the mass produce cookie cutter type of environment that if someone in the United States where every time as WalMart every for Burs has Panara bread or there's some type of uniform as you think from from backlash to that to where this desire for independent project. Right. I think there's always been a desire for independent projects and about because. The more money the more money, something cough. The more people have to buy right to make it make it a profit or responsible business decision. So that's why you get the spider-man's and that man's and everybody loved those movies. I mean, at least I do, you know, I can every marvel movie ever made right? But then you also the smaller movies too. If if if you're aware of them, and they peak your interest, you'll go. So I think that stores as long as there's a camera and a person has idea, they're always the smaller movie. I think what the internet has done has it has allow content makers. To have a platform. Showcase the works. They create. And there's old they're big I told the distribution as well as the production of their image. So this leather is also has also been thing popular music. I know they're at several musical projects that go directly to the consumer bypass that the major corporations, and they could be Trinite what I'm trying to figure out if you guys think this training indicative to larger movement within society. I like that was actually yes, I don't necessarily think if equality. Just a person has. Yup. Facility to create and distribute theory is equal right. But when it comes into practice and function. Is not necessarily equal because. Filmmaker independent extra a corner can shoot a movie put on the internet. Everybody can see it. Right. And it's enough people like it. It'll be successful. Like, south of example, of that south was a fairly successful movie. Even she's gotta have it was a fairly successful movie based on even what we just heard right, but the the mass excess and appeal on a global on a global level that Batman will have or Titanic will have or a. You know, or those type of movies or Star Trek or Star Wars. We'll have the independent independent producer. It's very rare that that'll happen. Even with the success of my big fat. Greek wedding is still isn't a Batman type of success or appeal the most filmmakers make movies that appeal to them and their friends, which which pose earlier that if if the project. Gets into the the commonality between all of us are feeling. I think it resonates in quite frankly, if if over a million people can into a YouTube video of cat fiddle. I'm quite sure if a feature films speaks to the commonality affirmative exists. I'm sure that the audience for that so our making all right hat think is. Yeah.

What type of one reason you did in order to by Mansur film? Well for me. I like I said, I finance the film myself. And I spent I use most of funds for myself, and I got a couple of other people to invest, but I'm actually using crowdsourcing now to distribute my thumbs. So that's where I've had to sort of resort to that same concept to get my film played in in theaters because it's just it's a small documentary. I don't have a, you know, a huge general audience, but I'm actually now using crowdsourcing to get it in theaters. Oh, that's interesting. 'cause that that's the first. Yeah. Heard that. Yeah. So I'm doing now. So I have screenings in you know, in various cities right now in New York DC, the DC area, L Paso and in the Baltimore area. And I'm using crowd sourcing to have screenings there. So if enough people by advanced tickets, I have a screening if there is not enough interest. Then I don't so that's how I'm using crowdsourcing to try to, you know, recruit my money and to get an audience to see my film to have screening. So. You wanna play a website where they could go buy the ticket or find out more information about that. Yeah. Brown babies film dot com, and you can see where it is screening now.

"For me. This was more of a it was not only business, but it was more. It was my personal at least at the very beginning. It has now become more business oriented, but in making the film, I was at a point in my life where I wanted to do something meaningful, and I pitched this to a couple of different networks and gotten no response. No one was interested in doing it. And I decided to do it myself. And it was just really it was really a calling and and I and I feel this way. Now, I mean, I feel I feel like this is what I was this is part of my mission to make this film. It's like in my spirit, and my soul and. I don't know that I would do this again because you know, I financed. Everything I did as much work as I could myself and put, you know, my heart and soul, and, you know, Bank account in into making the film. I think a little different. But it was such a passion project me. I just felt like I needed to do it. Are there any stories in in the Brown babies story, it is relevant for today's audience? I notice say historical piece, but what could or what can someone to day take from this story? Well, a couple of things and thank you for asking that question. I mean, I think you know, when you we look at like, I it's black history month or black history. We sorta regurgitate sort of some of the same history lessons that you know, we we hear all the time. And here's a story that just few people know about and I think that's just very important. It's not black history. It's not American history it's world history. And you know, we have black children who are just simply abandoned and left to die in orphanages. And I think the world should know that number one every time there's a war in this country. Wherever they're American soldiers abroad their children somewhere, and you know, we've been in in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for the last ten years. There could be children there too. I just feel like it's an important story about war, and what happens to children who are the products of the war of various wars and people should be aware of that. So I think it's relevant even today. So the Europeans if another form of collateral damage, absolutely unknown, collateral damage of war, absolutely. Very. That you had in Asian with DNA tension for them and financing yourself. So he tells of you actually how. Part your chance assessed. We start with me Tina. Yeah. It was it was critical for me. Because I really I really didn't know what I was doing more. And I decided to make this movie like you said it was very personal for me. And I wanted to do something. And I wanted to do something meaningful with my life. And I wanted to feel fulfilled in my goal was just to see if I could do this. I didn't want to not. Not me not finish the movie. And if I just had a DVD. In my living room. I would I would have been fine with that. But I decided to inter film festivals. And I I was just so fortunate that the very first film festival I entered the American black film festival, I one and that gave me the exposure that that I need it. I think especially if you live for well. Film stuff was to help the specifically they American black stuff. That's helped me out a lot of helping a lot of my career. Every time I've done this. And. I've I've secured distribution for my film through that every time I've made because of that festival. So if a platform where?

There will be no black on the prostitutes any movies. I make. So we traced it. But had the script have not been entertaining. I never would even took the next step towards where do I stand with this grip morally because I'm not going to produce any content. It's not entertaining. But usually it can be it can be entertaining and provoking, it can also I guess just Thursday, and it can also I guess always promote the good cause. There are a lot of fans out there, in my opinion may not have much society to value. But they're very entertaining. And always interesting, the top filmmakers to see what their formula is before they take on a planet. That's my formula. I wanna look at his entertaining. I because of his entertaining, no matter how good it is. I don't think people are gonna be interested. You know, every story. I mean, you know, every story has a good and bad dynamic to it. If you don't have if you don't have the gang of story is not interesting to me. Okay. I think it's like where you were talking about race for second. And I was. When I was putting together this this particular show, I was thinking about I don't I don't think anybody ever really notices the casting of certain films, and there was a big do about like actors being cast with Latina actresses and the re in the reason being. Basically what sells? Actually comes to because if they would say, for instance, I can't remember the film. It was Denzel Washington with. Even ended. Thank you. And I remember when I came out a reading something regarding or they only if they would had a like actress as we actress office of him, and because it was her, and I think there was a partner with white. So they had that dynamic than it would attract audiences versus having a a black life. I think the same thing with hitch with little things thing concept is actually a couple of things out there that that I was wondering what the guests think what their thoughts are on race as it relates to making their films. So, wow, the time, you know, he did have some late on what the wasn't that film. Also mean? Oh, okay. But but for so this same film onto the Brooklyn Bridge the crime or do they work for the Latino do then and the and the main character is a the main female character is a Latino woman. Right. Okay. The mess because that's how the story is. So I like to keep my scripts to to real like is it a real situation as a real story, then less keeping making authentic. So I don't think that you should I don't think that we filmmakers to force. So fourth of fourth positions just because we want to make it a racial issue. And and at at at the risk of losing the authenticity of the story. Right. It's hostile. I'm sorry park is not. Is it not possible to develop a story that?

Touch me because it was primarily concerned with the human condition, and I'm wondering is it more important that film is true to to those things that are central to our existence or is it more important to have it typically. Representative of the diversity that we see right? Similar with the with the human condition. Very true. But it wouldn't have been authentic. Have we forced black people in the Jewish Holocaust story? Right. It's still would have dealt with the human condition. But you look at it like this often too. Right. Let's say grey to to regimes fill is a documentary with mercy's call Brown babies, and I'm wondering. First of all regarding financing or obtaining financing for that type of documentaries was that hard or how were you able to to pitch the idea or to get it across before you could even get the field made?.

Nobody bought it essentially will I well, we can just make ourselves. And that's how I got involved in film. I kinda fell into it. And then once I fell into it. And and decided that okay? This is something that I'm involved in something that I'm gonna take seriously participate in you know, I decided to do more research about the business aspect of it have anything works. And then decided that this might be something for me because I enjoy as producer. I enjoy the ability to take idea and then make a reality out of.

And I actually I've never I've never that was my personal only short-form project. So I liked it. I liked the writer and. I actually did the the guardian because I wanted to go into short form at work specifically web series and wet weather internet, they content. Wanted to have some experience in it. Because I had only done feature work. I've never I had never done a short before. So like most directors are early. So may cause they do a short first. And then they do a feature. Well, I just kinda jumped right into the feature world of at all, oh that was my short that was my first short film project ever. So I did it more as as a test to see if there's something I was interested in doing, and it it turned out. I mean, obviously, the filmmaker partner with he was a great filmmaker. And it turned out to be something that you know, how was proud of. I like people seem to like it is framing in the Orlando film festival October. So it's pretty good before.

Affect because we know being black abuse of color in this country that we larger microscope witness stand the reason that we should have that much more scrutiny our behaviors even even if it's not fair that they're not asking your white counterpart you saying who I know like we go why not remove the microscope.

I agree with you in my school from our responses destroy them scope instead of saying, you know, what we got to act, right? 'cause I. This question when you say what does that mean? You're in just just like you said before these are nonviolent offenses, especially talk about marijuana possession. We are being incarcerated double triple writes, white not. So the thing is when you if you were to decriminalize marijuana, you're taking them microscope from our black and Brown community because now marijuana just just like all the all the plane now for the most part, you know, when it's about in terms of.

You said if if I didn't courage, you that personal responsibility to take your life in in taking in the way that you wanted to go and now part you well for passing cause it's obvious. You concern with the lease of these? I get that everybody on his phone. So we're gonna Dow down the tone where we with stop Cussing together nature's. So we can have a reasonable conversation.

We all know that everybody on this phone for my at estimating is African can we we've experienced racism, but we all don't have the same background in for us and not have a criminal background. You cannot be mad at us. If we don't understand the mentality of someone who ends up in the criminal Justice system. And we, and of course, we feel the allies have been different because we've made different choices asking you. What we should let me get through. I'm asking you. We is those who are on your side who are saying that hey, the system is messed up. What should we do outside of those nonviolence? Not self medicating offensive. What can we do? Bring more Justice. Without denigrating infant personal stories in personal insults. So that's not question to both of you. But you only have a minute stuff on the phone. Okay. I don't want to. Right. I mean quick response to that is. No, those are by product of the fact that we're black when the police pull over then I'll put those over 'cause he got marijuana on the pulling over 'cause we went for fortunately may have marijuana on. We may have a pistol. We may have crack cocaine or may have had drive on the shores days like that.

I, you know, there's been a historic dialogue between this kind of narrative between personal billion systemic violence, and what we have to realize, but we have to come to grips with is that you first of all let me say this. We're not acting white folks to be personally responsible. Like, I said this physics show that show. This is not not immobile you want. Letting. Let let me let me on the backs of those who are suffering right now, man. My brother, my brother, I got three brothers and sisters. They all been in jail. I've been seen it. You know what I'm saying?

"Also kinda like just what Steve said, you know, there are certain there are certain drugs that we could argue that do have this little purpose. Currently now, obviously, for instance, with with rose any opium cocaine. No badminton that was used from attic reasons until the more harmful effects were study and the drug alcohol marijuana. I've always agree that that blackmail across rates for race due to marijuana. Wanna reasons why Carson rates are the highest and when decriminalize that recreational drug use that recreational drug like you say, they will decrease our numbers in criminal Justice system traumatically, but for a second I wanna go back to the actual economic of of incarceration. I had a question for one of my friends for the layman will want witnessed incarcerated black linen or women or really hus- rated peoples wherever actually being put to work for profit. What industries would you actually see this type files, which isn't a railroad construction? Would you see those, you know? Burger King, or what have you where would you actually pinpoint individuals who are across rated, but they're being used for profit. Yeah. That's a that's a very good question. The four profit presence industry is one of the most lucrative industries in the country right now that says he has made three hundred million dollars in contracts and the government last year, but to answer questions Pacific officially there are a host of companies that use prison labor, and you can new research, and you can find it online. But specifically some that I know starbuck chorea secret phone industry global tell link was so for one billion dollars to five equity firm in New York one billion so most popular phone industry in the prison system with over one billion dollars that says a line about our and then there was an effort. There was an a phenomenon going on where they were charging exorbitant amounts for these prisoners reset families, which actually helped them, which makes no sense counterproductive. So called rehabilitative system. Right. They were charging Hanley's fifteen dollars five minute call, you know, it's just ridiculous amounts of money to which made it harder for them, which makes it harder for us. So I mean, it's not just about Jeff though that I'm about their families. It's about their daughters about this son about their mother, you know on. So there are other companies as well somewhere, some of my mind right now in some online, but I know Starbucks, I know, Victoria, secret. Can come to my mom, but I and the global link with for a billion dollars you guys. It's funny because as far as a convict leasing system the end goal, the prison Louisiana is sort of modern manifestation of the comic leases. I've never been myself. But I think pictures, and I've seen videos of the angle the infamous Louisiana state prison, and you know, the the prisoners there have a rodeo and bull come in. They get entertained in the prison makes a lot of money off of the prisoners. Like, I said in certain states on prisoners make little ninety cents an hour. And it's not just how much they make the fact that they they're not allowed to unionize. They're not allowed to organize. They always on time. They are under sort of Milton sort of martial law at all the arguments that will be their prisoners. We describe actually how we can just area. Gone there. Really, quite they're humans. I let's say that they're human that are incarcerated that's very important framing. It is different. Wait, let me the fed that we we're debating that. Right. There shows how we've all been brainwashed. And looking at it. I mean, there's a by product of black oppression. So we legalize mile. Okay. Got committed this crowd.

What about the social assault that has been taking on to economic violence and the political? So we really have a deeper analysis to what's really going on in particular over saying, no black black afresh. But also get I always say argument those crazy etcetera etcetera, but you know, it's the pressure. On the on the mind that's contributing to the predator behavior. And we really have to get back to organizing and doing the working community at the height of civil rights move, the height of the black hog movement prime. Humidity wasn't weird 'cause we was organized. We was fighting just one state that our community cry became what it is in relation to blackmail in the black community. Okay now. Yeah. Let me let me first say that. I find it interesting. And I I have this conversation a lot. And I think it is. You know, it it's a question that that needs to be addressed. I, unfortunately, I think not unfortunately. But I think that there are other questions that I just just to be honest a little bit more important this time and enter the quite honest. You know, I'm not a not a law student, nor nor my lawyer, and I can only speak to what I what I do know I won't try to love. But but what I do know is that my decriminalizing marijuana Flickinger treating as a medical issue rather than a criminal issue. It would drastically decrease the population of prisoners that are going into the prison system. What to do those that are in? I would wanna get a group of illegal Scott. Together, folk like that who know how to work lot. I don't know how to do that right now. So I can't answer that question to that sense. But I can't say that by by by focusing too much on that question. What's gonna happen with the folks that are in did misses out on the larger part part that and that they shouldn't be there in the first place, and let me give you just you know, I I go to Princeton. There's more drugs at Princeton. Then then then the blackout live on in Newark, New Jersey, I live in Norton jersey, I live in, you know, live in the belly of east, but I go to Princeton. I and I see more drugs at Princeton than I do a lot. So the point is is that there is and I don't wanna to overlook the racial dynamics here. I don't want us to why aren't the police raiding the dorms at Princeton where I go to school while they rating the black wild live. I think we have to ask that question, and we have to be very intentional and carefully now. And even in. The questions that we add. So what should we do business? I don't know. I think that that's a question that can be addressed along the way. But I think the more important questions are why in the hell are these folks who carry not one on the in a dungeon cage in it being treated like animals because they had a a drug on. I mean, it very and it's not just about marijuana because I don't want to stop it there any drug should be treated as a public health issue. It is not a crime. You're not a criminal when you're either addictive drug. You have a drug on you or you're selling it is in the public health issue if something that is not unique to black community or the Brown community off oaks white black Brown. According to his book, there is no there's no disproportionality between racists and using drugs or selling in fast. There is it would be life cell and use. At a highly. But that is not known that went. I don't there's not a argument hear about the medical nature of substance abuse and people self medicate, but I would have to take issue with you whether or not you say people fill drugs are not criminals. That's to me that's a separate issue. And I don't see those people who sell drugs is if learns who are necessarily victims of society, perhaps their reasons that pushed him or which meant them to feel that they should engage in practice. But I don't think they necessarily are self medicating at the same rate as people who use drugs for the mental health issues or usual recreationally..

"Okay. That was interesting. Glad to have. Yussef on the line. Now, I know that you and now actually met at the students. They get mass incarceration national conference that was here in DC. I think a couple of weeks ago. Good segue to I think if I'm not mistaken it with the first national conference that they had. And I was wondering if you could tell us what the the goal of the conference was and what happened at the conference. What the objectives were? Oh, I can't say what was the go. Actually, I was brought in by some formula of incarcerated in folks that I was a friend of a friend who works with Eddie who's approved political prisoner just hit. I mean, you know, it was about bringing awareness. But unfortunately, a lot of is really connected to a lot of cliche. These slogans mass incarceration industrial conflicts, which they have they have meaning wherever the meaning is not really connecting to black oppression exploitation thirsty. Women need to say our servitude seller lists except as far so. So we we talking about Indian mass incarceration, we're not any black oppression. We we're we're losing sight on the on the big ago. No massive concentration who out of black the first. I think. Okay. I was looking at Stephen had question 'cause he's ties into me. So if I can. Point of the conference for minus ending, and I'm also not official member of family. Some speaking someone who's close to the organization, but not a member for my understanding. It was the first and story event, and it was a par- partially to organize students a critical mass of student to address the issues Laco pression matching in the context of mass incarceration black pressure at the context of industrial complex, and and and the war on drugs physically and a host of other things and it it's really brought aware. It is it also allowed us spaces to organize his as students activists folks who are been incarcerated, and it was very eclectic group of folk who got together, and it was mainly to organize around these things. So that we won't just keep complaining that would begin to begin to to do more. Adult person that was there. Maybe it made great steps. But again, you know, part of a group phony across if people's movie whether that we initiate, your speaking out was fortunate a lot of the folks who were having this conversation. So have the folks at the table of myself, I to be a part of the panel of the world or something like that. And basically I had to we had to force myself to be a part of it too occurrence that was their basic laws because they didn't know what was I did know years in prison. My father's thirty years in prison. Uncle. Sixteen years in prison. So we add up the dishes speech for self. We look at the the pressure within our community that we have. So folks are talking about talking. You have to take you from factual community vice versa. But we have to have a finger on the pulse. But what's really going up? Those those still should be applauds, but the work has yard just those those walls. I agree up. Stevedoring somebody asked you the same question. I asked now earlier we were talking about before you got on the line. We're talking about a big ties, and then also criminalizing some offenses, particularly non five pences. And and oh lying on this probably part of the feedback. You got to get got a question for our callers and her questionable or even if we criminalize what do we do with the current amount of inmates that are in prison now for nonviolent crimes? Do you suggest we just released those people broke alone? Or what are you? What's your suggestion? You in. I mean for me. I mean, that's a tricky question from I don't I don't I don't recognize the legitimacy of America shit as illegal parts see those who who govern runs. They they are they are the real criminals as should be locked up. So we when you break it up like myself, I was convicted of with the rob. So that's that's the violent crime.

"So and we are allowed him to write for lows that hold our neighbors as criminals, so what's your? What's your address, your really the fact that that the the criminal Justice system is somewhat industrializing somewhat corrupt would do you offer as a potential remedy to that set without alone? Primos love free. Yeah. Well, let's look at how it works now. And maybe actually give some statistics to kinda ground us in our thinking and discussion, so we can see exactly because some folks are under the impression that the criminal Justice system right now focuses on criminals or serious criminals. But that that is actually just it's simply not the reality. The reality is that like I said most folks who are arrested who are in prison incarcerated actually are in there for a non violent. Offense such as marijuana position. And that is actually one of the most popular ways, she'll get last up into get imprisoned. So I I think we need to frame this correctly. And we need to we need to say that we need we need to we need to be interpreting what's happening, and it's topper life. Because most folks have things that everyone in prison is in there for murder rape or or some kind of serious events. But the reality is, of course, that they're not, and I'll get you some statistics in two thousand African Americans throughout seven states constituted eighty to ninety percent of all drug offenders to prison, and at least fifteen states African Americans are mid to prison on drug charges that rate from twenty to fifty seven times bigger than that of white men. And although the majority of illegal drug users and dealers are white, and this is a coding to Michelle Alexander's book, the new. Crow. Seventy five percent of all prisoners convicted for joke. Offenses are African American or like being I mean, just give a few more out of it. Two point seven million prisoners five hundred thousand are non violent drug offenders. I'm not good at math. But that somewhere quarter a little less than a quarter. Almost one out of every four a mathematician, would shoot me. But it's almost one in four five hundred thousand two point seven million are in different nonviolent drug offenses and the majority of them being arrested for simple marijuana possession in the nineteen nineties. Marijuana accounted for properly eighty percent of all growth interest. And in two thousand five four out of every five drug arrests were presenting rather than distribution that is eighty percents eighty percent of drug arrests and two thousand and five were possession. So I think we need to frame how we president. How do the criminal Justice system? How we do. What? Are doing we all know that you know, most most most people that are are not arrested for from Thailand products. Or at least a significant amount of weakens day, actually say that they are rested for nonviolent offenses. So I think that framing to be right. And I think we need to these stigmatize a lot of folks that are actually incarcerated and that we need to be honest about what the police forces and legislation actually doing and they all the. For. Big on them. So fairly sounds like you're saying personalized not necessarily stigmatize. Because know, I'm I'm guessing advocate all aware of law, and no sports and. To the low, and I don't move do. With someone in the wrong out of a row. Match even. That. Yeah. That's that's. Yeah. I I it sounds like you're seeing more not necessarily be stigmatize. But the criminal is in in the ways things now, you know, we most of our where the laws, and and I personally believe it has to be some type of accountability for one's actions. I understand there's something else that play like mental hills, or or some type of efforts or socioeconomic status factors that our employees live. We we still haven't address the core issue for what's more issue. Excuse me. I said what is the core issue for you? The core issue for me is accountability is one of them. And we all know the racism exists. We all know that there ever conditions out there and the winter state of our fate of low. I mean, I think perhaps we need to look your perhaps decriminalizing some of these offensive as opposed to be stigmatizing alone. Oh, yeah. No. I I'm totally actually my article I have a section called euchre move -ation..

"So that's that's a very specific example of many scholars and activists have come to call this a nominee off the prison industrial complex where they're locating the Pacific kind of a happening that is connecting prisons to profit. And where where comic literally become a sort of a way for corporations to make money in the same way that it happened or similar way. I I should say rather than it happened during slavery. So although we live in a very different looking world, right? There was no corrections corporation of America in the nineteenth century. However there were playing patience, and there were there was the same kind. Of system where you were using cheap labor, or at that time, it was literally free labor to to make profit, and we all know the history of this country, and how was built on that kind of late ac- in that kind of reality. And so I think we we look at it in that sense. We look at it as the president does complex as a way for corporation to literally make money off of prisoners and pay them nearly nothing. They have a little literally. No, right. You know, then then the clear comparison, and it's funny because a lot of folks are wondering whether job point, and yes, a lot of the jobs did go overseas, you know, to other America, and to China and do other places where people are desperate to work for money, and they'll they'll take cheaper wages, but a lot of times. People miss this act that a lot of. Jobs, actually, I've gone into the prison system. Not whether it's not Stephen reach. I had a question about CC. I'm from Tennessee, some some of with it. So I was wondering how you felt about the fact that legislators who right below can actually host stock in CCA who actually incarcerate the people who break to lows. Yeah. I mean that that just goes to show, you know, how big business and government are. I mean, some folks in bed together or they just simply have a a symbiotic relationship. You know, it goes to show how closely high legislation and raw and politics is profit and money making and it goes to show the sort of corruption that can easily happen when you have that kind of tau. And fortunately, it's always actually expense of the those that are at the bottom of the totem pole. It's always a expensive black and Brown, folks. Oh, poor folk expensive. You know, those who are who are producing. So I think that's a very good point. And I think that that's something that a lot of not a lot. But some scholars are pointing out some people everyday football coining out that that we need to pay more attention to the why why is it that politician can have that kind of power to you know, to to literally legislate law in a way to to source the interests of big business. It's a it's a it's a problem that we're having not just in our prison system. But in all all in my opinion of politics. I mean, even the fact that you have to raise an astronomical amount of money to become president United States. What does that mean? And how is that connected to it? So I think that you're raising really good point that we also need to address is how legislation as. Into it. And how politicians have often literally built their careers off Cup on crime rhetoric. We can look at Ronald Reagan and his infamous, you know, welfare babies and Kratz crack mothers, and and it's tough on crime rhetoric in you know, we can we can trace that even to Bill Clinton and his three strikes in you're out. You know, so it we literally have a political atmosphere where people are getting both by putting folks in prison and just let me point out really quick. And I'll let you let me just point out. Most of these folks that are being put in prison being put in prison for nonviolent offensive non-violent. Yes. That's my next question. What do you propose that we do with people who break the law understand their social and economic factors that play into a guess the the situations that would lead one to be on the wrong side of the low? But what is your suggestion of how we handle these types of people we can't just allow them to willy nilly break below the end of the day. We sent our legislators to represent us..

"Well, that's some kind of actual context to that statement. And to that cliche. We is quite true. And I think when we. What we see after the thirteenth amendment was passed with a convict leasing system in place. We see a way of maintaining slip slavery, except now it is legal. And I think it's important to know how that is is now legal in was legal because if you read the thirteenth amendment as I'm sure of many of us know, it actually, you know, allows for a certain kind of car Surra slavery. You know, it says that basically slavery is not allowable except for the punishment of crime that is literally apart of the Surtees amendment. So that is very interesting to see how slavery in one sense. I can't say ended but on paper it was declared the over yet. There's a huge caveat even within that document that allows in able for a certain kind of car slavery slavery to continue in prison systems. I think that's that's that's where we can trace it back. And I'm like, I said, I'm not a historian. I'm sure historians can do a much better job of articulating that framing it. But for me in an article that that's where I basically began where we see the beginning of the car surreal situation here in America. So basically when the slave resistant India, then the prison system began is this what I'm hearing from from my readings research prior to the thirteenth amendment and probably more. Specifically, the emancipation proclamation. Though, the prison system as we know it did not exist. There was punishment. There was corporal punishment. And you know, but but as far as a very systematic organized prison system with a significant amount of the population incarcerated, I it just did not exist prior to the ratification of those in. We see that the actual building of the prison system. I believe activist teens amendment was ratified. It looks. It was a sort of white backlash to black reconstruction. Right. I mean, we have progress in one sense, and we have a very serious backlash. And and always the question of what to do with negro and the answer for the most part was to keep them in flav through prison labor. So it's almost like, you know, we think about interest service, which feel to me a form of slavery because some of those people never stopped being indigenous servants..

And that's a lot now. It is. And I guess let me start by giving a caveat. I'm not a historian. So is there any historians listening there with me? But I, but I will say a few things that I that I do know based on my reading my research as a frame in my article, I think is important when we think about and talk about mass incarceration and the proliferation of our prison system here in the US, it's important to have a sort of historical grounded and to start at the right place. So for me as I do in my article, I start with labor, and I think that's where we find these seminal beginnings of where mass incarceration came from. Where where what is connected to? And I think making those connections are truly important. So basically after the emancipation proclamation with many of us know was signed on January first eighteen sixty excuse me. Excuse me. I'm sorry. That was then refers eighteen sixty three and there was a sort of, you know, this sure does your does your a emancipation of slaves though, we know that what for many slaves. It was not a reality. With simply a document. There was a lot of hoopla about what what to do with with these newly freeze lease and more specifically after the passing the congress ratified the thirteenth amendment which was came out of the emancipation proclamation in eighteen sixty five they're they're believe is where we begin to see a the spring the spring up of prisons specifically in the south. So we see the the Friedman the slaves that were, you know, former sleighs and now they're free being put back into a prison system through what? Historians have come to call the convict leasing system, and the convict leasing system is very interesting because it was pretty much, and and and not too many words, it was in a new way to maintain the old system, and, you know, white southern plantation owners, basically purchase prisoners to live on their property and work under the control many times in harsher conditions than slavery. You know during this time putting this where literally purchase they were leased as you MS and blows for for numerous jobs. I mean, we're talking coal mining iron forging steel making and railroad building and a host of other things. So I think when we I mean, you hear people say a slave built this country..
